Abstract

PURPOSE: To decrease the capacity of a line buffer by writing character patterns in a paper image memory at a line after line division processing when character patterns are written in the paper image memory.
CONSTITUTION: A line of size larger than prescribed size stored in a page buffer 2 is divided by an editing control circuit 3 into plural lines of size smaller than the prescribed size by using a forms control buffer 1 stored with line size data on all lines, and the divided lines are stored in a working buffer 4. An expansion control circuit 6 carries out line-by-line expansion processing by the working buffer 4 and a character pattern memory 5. In this case, the line buffer memory used as temporary storage may have only the prescribed size smaller than maximum line size, so the capacity of the line buffer memory is decreased.
